This post is entirely dedicated to my wonderful husband, Richard. This post is in real time, not behind a few days like most are. Today is actually his 31st birthday. What a way to spend a birthday! I can’t sing enough praise for having a husband who is adventurous enough and loves his wife enough to be willing to give up a year of his life and go on a crazy adventure that wasn’t originally his dream! He adopted this dream to ride across America as his own and is a willing participant in its joys and sufferings. I know it never would have happened without both his willingness and his gentle prodding in the beginning to encourage me not to give up. What a gift he is to me!
Thank you, Richard, for all you are, all you have been to me, and all you strive to be. You are an amazing man, a joy and gift in my life, and a blessing on this journey we are taking. I love spending the time with you; both our conversations and our comfortable silence. The trials have made us stronger, and the awe filled experiences have enriched our lives and our marriage. I am so glad that we are still hand in hand as we ride our way across this amazing country.
Please join me in pouring out love and encouragement to Richard on this special birthday.
Richard- Happy, Happy Birthday! I love you forever- Jeannette
